Researchers around the globe are interested in understanding the impact of education initiatives on young people and their awareness and approval of organ and tissue donation. A number of research publication are collected here to show value of organ donation education modules and curricula for various age levels. 

We believe that educating young people about organ donation is a key part of improving the organ and tissue donation and transplantation system in Canada and in other jurisdictions. Empowering young people to make informed decision about donation when the time comes is surely the type of learning that has the potential to make a difference.
